Google AI Assistant That Understands, Combines, and Works Across Multiple Forms of Data

Google Gemini, formerly known as Bard, is the latest artificial intelligence (AI) tool available to educators. Understanding what Google Gemini is, how it operates, and how it can be utilized in the educational space, can go a long way toward gaining educators’ approval of AI as a tool for teaching and learning on a grander scale.

The main feature of Google Gemini is its multimodal build. This makes it different from other AI builds as it gives Gemini the ability to understand, combine, and work across multiple forms of data: text, code, images, video, and audio.

To ensure everyone with a smart device can use Gemini, Google has designed the AI model in three different sizes: Gemini Nano for smaller tasks; Gemini Pro for midrange tasks; and Gemini Ultra for large-scale tasks. Anyone can access these AI models regardless of the device they use to do so.

Because it can understand text, images, audio, video, and more, simultaneously, Gemini has the ability to understand complex information and provide solutions to complex problems. This can have an immense impact on education. For example, students may find a useful tutor with Google Gemini. With its ability to understand large amounts of complex information, making sense of mathematical and scientific problems in a way students can understand might be critical to overcoming educational roadblocks.

With Gemini, teachers can quickly analyze years of grades to better understand a student’s academic journey. A new multimodal approach could help influence lesson plans that target overall and individual weaknesses in student learning habits. Gemini might even be able to provide insight about the best path forward for a student in their educational career through higher education and beyond.
